Is your SDN personality the same as your "real life" personality?

For myself, I am a total tool on SDN and I am an extremely kind and courteous person in real life.

You wouldn't recognize me!!!

Sometimes I'm more zany on SDN, because I let go of my inhibitions. Irl, I'm kinda shy/serious unless I'm comfortable being around you.

so what you're saying is that your real life projection is just an act?

I think so. I can be serious but I can also be a smartass. Surprised that I've only received one infraction.

I'd say I'm about the same in real life. Maybe a little less frank, though. :)

Concerned people should know that I have a mouth to speak from in real life.

Pretty much the same. I might seem more outgoing on SDN than I really am due to my frequent posting.

(or does frequent use of internet forums automatically label you as a recluse :laugh: )

I don't know. I think it depends on the situation, but I would say I'm probably kind of different in reality. I'm probably a lot more sarcastic and less serious in actuality.

If I acted online the way I acted IRL around my buds, I would be banned for inappropriate jokes :D I'm waaay more inhibited on here.

My personality is so magnetic, I am unable to carry credit cards. I never say something tastes like chicken. Not even chicken.

I am the only man to ever ace a Rorschach test. If I were to give you directions, you'd never get lost, and you'd arrive at least five minutes early.

My reputation expands like the universe. I once had an awkward moment, just to see how it felt. My organ donation card also lists my beard.

I'm a lover, not fighter, but I'm also a fighter, so don't get any ideas. My blood smells like cologne.

My legend precedes me, just like lightning precedes thunder. I am, the most interesting man in the world.

I don't always drink beer, but when I do, it's Dos Equis. Stay thirsty my friends.

Definitely not. I generally refuse to talk about medical school in real life...so, take away the attempted helpfulness, throw in some snark, some east coast bluntness, and a slightly-morbid, british sense of humor and that's me.

I am shocked that anyone would bother to be themselves on the internet.

Aren't you at all tempted by the gloriousness of anonymity?

I am addicted to saying exactly what I think on SDN, but would never say IRL, to people who make idiotic comments. And there is a never-ending stream of idiocy here.

I feel like a kid in a candy store. It is so liberating and helps me blow off steam.

How can you restrain yourselves? And why would you?
